"I took my wife to OIBLTIBS for her birthday. The building and rooms are gorgeous - very romantic, and fairly small, so you feel like you're really somewhere special. The food was surprisingly good, as I thought perhaps the restaurant would skate by on atmosphere alone. We had a significant problem with service, however. Our waitress basically abandoned us after taking our order, and didn't show up again until it was time for desert. By the time she arrived, we were already late for a nearby show, and had to leave without desert - which was included in the prix-fixe. We had to flag down another waiter for service, and complained to the manager. They were nice enough to pay for our first round of drinks, but this poor service shouldn't happen at such a top restaurant."

Balthazar is a traditional French Brasserie with a bustling railway station atmosphere. Our kitchen serves a variety of meat and poultry dishes including: Duck Shepherds Pie, Roasted Chicken and Steak Frites. Balthazar specializes in seafood with an array of fish entrees and a complete raw oyster and shellfish bar.

"This was our first visit to Balthazar. The restaurant is very French in terms of its look and feel, and the breakfast was fantastic. Our visit was slightly marred by some trouble getting seated, despite having a reservation and arriving on time. They tried seating us in poor locations about 3 times - close to the kitchen, close to a group of teenage tourists, close to the bussing station, and so on. We finally got a great table, and it was all good from there on."
